When you walk the entire Old Town of Vilnius starting from the Cathedral Square you reach Gates of Dawn at the other end of your walk. They are the only Gates of the Old Town which still remain Rest of the gates are not there

The last remaining part of the wall of vilnius is here so worth visiting and reading up on the history connected with the Virgin Mary. A must for religous visitors.
